If the Kia Optima is on your shortlist of prospects in your search for a capable sedan, Kia of West Chester has placed a few key resources at the disposal of our local West Chester, Philadelphia, Ardmore, Springfield, Exton, and Wilmington drivers.
On this page, you’ll find links to reviews of the Optima that will allow you to really dive into its various attributes.
Here’s a peek at some of the valuable information you’ll have the opportunity to explore!
Kia Optima Trim Levels
The Kia Optima offers four available trim levels for you to choose from. The entry-level trim is the Optima LX.
This is a great fit for many drivers, particularly those who don’t need all the bells and whistles but still want to have the basics. You can also choose from the S, EX, and SX trim levels.
Finding the trim level that’s the right fit for you depends on the powertrain and features you want most. For more information about trim levels and the differences between them, stop by our dealership and speak to our experienced sales team.
Kia Optima Technology
The infotainment system that comes standard in the Optima makes use of an 8-inch touchscreen for easy access, Bluetooth® audio streaming, Bluetooth® hands-free connectivity, and USB accessibility. Available infotainment features include a Voice-Command Navigation System, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, and HD Radio™.
With this helpful technology right in front of you, it’s easy to see how this makes your life easier. In an older model, you may not have had Bluetooth® hands-free capability. There’s a chance you had to fumble around with your phone while driving, but that’s no longer something you have to think about. Use the hands-free capability to your advantage and avoid distracted driving.
The Optima also manages to make an impact when it comes to entertainment. For one, this vehicle is available with a Harman/Kardon® QuantumLogic™ Premium Surround Sound system with Clari-Fi™. This robust 10-speaker, 630-watt system delivers a powerful listening experience.
The Kia Optima also allows you to access your favorite smartphone apps with the standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration features for compatible devices.
You may be the kind of person who just loves having your phone on you at all times. Perhaps you’re waiting on that important call, or maybe you want to reach out to friends to let them know you’re on the way. You’ll be able to do that with this smartphone integration.
You can also set your destination using your favorite GPS app, or select a new song for the road ahead with just a few taps of your favorite music app.
Reassuring Safety Features
In the event that your Kia Optima is involved in a collision, it uses an advanced system of airbags to support everyone on board. This system includes the following:
- Full-length side curtain airbags
- Driver’s-side knee airbag
- Dual front advanced airbags
- Dual front seat-mounted side airbags
Other safety features that set the Optima apart are standard Lane Departure Warning, Front Collision Warning, Rear-Camera Display, available Blind Spot Collision Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning.
Kia Optima Features Making Life Easier
The Optima is known for its ability to make your life a little bit easier. The remote keyless entry with trunk opener and illuminated ignition key lock cylinder comes in handy. Remote keyless entry allows you to lock or unlock your Kia at the press of a button. The lighting on the ignition makes it easier to find if it’s dark out.
A standard 60/40 split-folding rear seat with center armrest and adjustable rear headrests is a help, too. This 60/40 split-folding rear seat allows you to fit longer cargo items into your Optima, while still carrying rear-seat passengers. If a larger cargo load is coming along for the ride, both rear seats can be folded.
Kia Optima Engine Specs
The standard 2.4L 4-cylinder engine in the Kia Optima provides 185 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. This is perfect for the daily drives and weekend getaways––with peppy performance you’ll feel on both narrow city streets and the highway alike.
There are two available engines with turbocharger technology, which can increase the Optima power output. You may decide that the 1.6L turbocharged engine that supplies the Optima with 178 horsepower is the right choice for you. Or, you may opt for the 2.0L turbocharged engine, which delivers 245 horsepower.
We’ll be happy to let you explore the various Kia Optima engines at our dealership, so you’re able to find the one that’s the perfect match for your lifestyle and driving needs.
